pre purchase questions

My budget is 17K-20K, a lot of that is for post purchase upgrades. Is it realistic to think I can find a boat from the 70s early 80s without out some deck issues? The only boat I saw that didn’t have soft spots on the deck was a Sabre 30 that had sunk. Most of the others had deck repairs using the drill and fill method, should I be worried?

Why would a PO change the teak toe rail to a typical toe rail on a Tartan 30?

Can blisters be seen on a boat that has been out of the water for a little over a year? If they dried up can you notice them through bottom paint?

How do you join the email lists here on sailnet?

Thanks
Evan
